What's On at #STCGlobal

If there's one thing you can count on at Seatrade Cruise Global, it's the opportunities for meeting up with fellow cruise professionals.

We love nothing more than bringing the cruise community together for business and social networking, and our event program is packed with opportunities to say hi to new faces while meeting up with old friends. 

Here's a quick rundown of some of the event features at the show in April:

The Conference

From the greatly anticipated 'State of the Cruise Industry' keynote address, featuring a cast of international cruise leaders, through to the dozens of individual sessions where practical thought leadership, education and inspiration are the take-aways, the Seatrade Cruise Global Conference packs some punch. 

The Exhibition

The largest trade event dedicated to cruise anywhere in the world. Exhibitors from every sector of the industry (tech, design, ports, destinations, entertainment, health & safety, shipbuilding, expedition, hotel ops, sanitation) gather to share the latest products and services. An Aladdin's cave of discovery!

The Design Lounge

Showcasing an inspired vision of modern cruise interiors, the lounge is your dedicated space to collaborate with cruise lines and fellow creatives. Gather together with fellow architects, designers and developers for special events and receptions.

The Networking Lounge

We are proud to be the No.1 event choice for cruise executives, and we understand how important it is for you to meet up with key contacts in a safe environment. The Networking Lounge is a space to connect with familiar faces and make new friends, a spot for productive rest and relaxation.

NEW - Matchmaking Lounge

Look out for our new matchmaking service to come online in the lead up to the event. Your space for private meetings with contacts arranged through our new AI driven matchmaking software and dedicated concierge team. Perfect for relaxing and expanding your little black book of cruise contacts!

Professional Women in Cruise Brunch

A great networking event, the Professional Women in Cruise Brunch in partnership with WISTA, is always super-well attended and a great occasion. Taking place alongside a panel discussion, it never fails to attract many of the most senior women in the industry.

Opening Night Welcome Reception

The Opening Night Welcome Reception is the official opening night gala and is considered the social highlight of the week. The reception is the largest gathering and premier networking function of Seatrade Cruise Global, hosting 700+ industry professionals.
